AndyReynolds (1068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Notes from 4/26/2014. Typical bourbon barrel (brown sugar, vanilla, oak) with some smoked malts, caramel, and toast. I also got some leather (? Can’t read my writing). Anyway, I ticked it 4 stars on the day, my notes add up to 4.1. So not too far off.

Ferris (8042) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015

One2remeber (189) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottled 07.24.14 A: murky brown, lively, nitro looking espresso creamy head. S: big tar, chewy baked brownie, bourbon mixed with root beer. TM: creamy cola feel, rich bourbon is mild. A light booze/burn/warmth on lingers. A bit of sherry sweetness on the back. Sharp tannin like a black pepper burn. O: Clean, pronounced flavors, would not expect much more from a BBA Scotch Ale.
